Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Not definitely recorded since Porritt (1883-86) and the only record he gave was from Redcar (VC62) in 1875. There have been several recent records but these are considered unconfirmed as this species has declined over the whole country and Skinner (1984) suggests that in England it is probably now restricted to the Brecklands of East Anglia and the eastern border counties to the North.
Current status (CHF, 2011): Last recorded 1875. Recent claimed reports have all been misidentifications. In national decline with most recent records in East Anglia.
